The in sounds from way out on the Uncut office stereo
Some strong new music from some old favourites – Weller, Kristin Hersh, Wooden Shjips – while the irresistible rise of John Dwyer’s Thee Oh Sees continues apace. For fresher sounds, though, the Virginia Wing and Leon Vynehall tracks are terrific – as is Jonny Benavidez, whose Chicano Soul should put a spring in your step this Bank Holiday. Keen eyes will note I’ve included Luluc’s “Heist” again this week – I make no apologies as the track is a killer introduction to what I think is one of the best album’s I’ve heard so far this year.
